The RT Booklovers Convention is just around the corner and Rayna over at Naughty Editions has already scoped out the Hyatt. I’m still hoping that I’ll be able to show up on Saturday for the massive book fair since it’s only 4 hours away, but we’ll have to see.
All Things Urban Fantasy has found the cover for Becca Fitzpatrick’s Crescendo, the follow up to Hush, Hush. The cover reveal was actual done at the Denver Teen Lit Festival via sidewalk chalk by Laurie Maves, which in itself is fabulous. I have to say, I love this cover. Especially the red feather. Crescendo comes out November 16, 2010.
